An insult to my intelligence
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was required to watch this movie for an environmental communications class. I have never seen such a pathetic movie in my entire life. The characters are weak and nauseous, the plot nonexistent, and the point lacking. Nearly every female and most smart males in the class considered this film (if you can even call it that) a waste of time and an insult to our intelligence. Here is only movie that made me want to pollute the Earth by throwing the DVD out the window! Save your time and skip this one. It did not have the goofy likability of "Dumb and Dumber", nor the laughs of comedies like "Tommy Boy" or "Monty Python." It only possessed pure idiocy, which apparently all the actors and actresses in this movie thrived on.
